synthetic stocks- yes the 710 has one but he means a synthetic stock like McMillian or HS Precision which are very dourable and stand up to the elements and dont crack under field conditionsmele said:What makes a tactical rifle?
There is no single set of criteria that is required to make a rifle a tactical rifle. But there are generally "common" traits. We like synthetic stocks for immunity to weather changes, we like heavy barrels for accuracy, we like accuracy of at LEAST 1 MOA or better. We like contoured stocks that work well in the prone position. etc
